I know a large portion of this community is from Reddit, and anyone from Reddit knows that Redditors don’t like emojis. So, I’m curious if this will become the standard here as well. Discussion?
Mostly because they take up space without adding anything. There is no point leaving a comment on something that's just an (insert crying laughing emote here because I don't know how to type one). Sure, it means you found it funny, but a like is enough to to say that. So what's the point? The OP already knows you enjoyed his/her message, so you're not giving more information, and there's nothing to discuss, meaning that an emoji comment is a dead end. So, basically, emotes are useless.
